Is HR Ready for a MakeOver?

NO. I am not an HR expert or a MakeOver Specialist.
My interest began in HR as a Headhunter in ’93 when I went for a lecture presentation by a Hewitt PhD about ‘Predictive Techniques in Recruitment’ . It continued. I liked the Base Questions in NHRDN like ‘ Why People behave the way they do?’ .
In our B School we took a project on a very large company going thru a violent strike and came out with a finding that ” People bring the Behaviour of their surroundings and Re-create it at the Workplace too!” It was fun !
Over the years, I Selected, Recruited, Inducted, Trained, Coached and Mentored many and got Coached by very Senior Executive Coaches. My interest in the subject continued. I liked the ‘Strengthsfinder’ book by Marcus Buckingham and the technique used.
Now, I feel, sometimes very strongly that the time has come for HR to ‘Reform, Change, Reconstruct and Re-shape itself’. My first PSU MD was a Ex Harvard Professor and he changed the function Personnel Management and IR into Human Resources Department and said the first thing to know is HRD = Humane ! I wish it was as I learnt over the course of next 30 years of Corporate life that HRD wasn’t ‘Humane’ at all. And that’s my personal opinion.
Let us look at the Two words today, that I have been picking up this year for Provoking Thought. The first one in today’s email by Business Dictionary.com was :Term of the Day

human resources

The division of a company that is focused on activities relating to employees. These activities normally include recruiting and hiring of new employees,orientation andtraining of current employees, employee benefits, andretention. Formerly calledpersonnel.

Usage Example

Is this Humane? Is this really HR? Some food for the Intellectuals.
The Second word I have today is:
Term of the Day

Federal Reserve System

The central banking system of the U.S., comprised of the Federal Reserve Board, the 12 Federal Reserve Banks, the Federal Open Market Committee, and the national and state member banks. Its primary purpose is to regulatethe flow ofmoney and credit in the country. The Federal Reserve was established in 1913 to maintain a sound and stable banking system throughout the United States and to…

Usage Example
The Federal Reserve System uses the discount rate as a tool to maintain a stable financial environment.
There is no linkage between the two and it is given here just to make a loose association and provoke thoughts.
The Notable Quotable for the day is:
Notable Quotable
“It is difficult to see the picture when you are inside the frame.” 
-John Doerr, Kleiner Perkins.
Bottomline – May be it is time for HR Experts to take a Sabbatical and break from the profession for a Month, Quarter or a Year and Develop a Humane Reserve System ( No I won’t ask for a Copyright on this term) and RePosition HR. Trust me, when I say this – your presence will be least felt by business if you take this well deserved break ! Come back in the New Form and you may even become an Equal Business Partner in the C Suite ! Amen !
